to produce carbon-producing technologies in the future. we are giving away our future. the president said future generations will look at the whole question as a moral one. we cannot ignore tha problem as serious as this. we have had cataclysmic storms and hurricanes and drought and fires. congress has spent billions and billions of dollars to try to help the areas that have become victims. what we have seen is a small example of what we will see. if we go forward, it will not eliminate problem. it will still take a lot to mitigate a lot of the damage because of the excess cause of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. >> louisiana, a republican column. >> congressman. i hope you will give me a minute or two to reel off a couple of facts about global warming. we have had 16 years with no warning whatsoever. sandy was not a hurricane when it made landfall. the drought reporter said the drop was less likely climate change. in great britain, a report was released law when warming predictions. james, a member, he just recently lowered his expectations. i would hope the facts will come out. more
significant improvements. there are more improvements to be made, particularly in the area of technology that has been developed in iraq and afghanistan, in ability to surveil and apprehend, whether we are talking about drones or satellites. in a few months, down on the arizona border, the temperature will be 120 degrees. it is hard on people. it is hard for people to remain efficient during those conditions. the more technology and surveillance capacity you have, the less wear and tear on these brave men and women patrolling our border. we can do that. but it is coined to take a while. [indiscernible] [laughter] >> did you hear senator mccain said he was so sorry you got reelected? one thing i wanted to finish up with is, we are here talking about manufacturing's next chapter. there seems to be a new spring in the step of talking about manufacturing, that there are new technological breakthroughs happening. there are a lot of problems. the last 10, 15 years, i cannot remember manufacturing conferences that were not more doom and gloom. the you get the sense we are turning a corner in th
. the united states is in the middle of another reinventing right now. technology is changing and giving them that at its edge back. let's start with manufacturing. i will give you a crash course. just like we saw oil doing something we worried about, now you have newspapers writing about saudi america. fracking change our entire perspective of oil. look at competing. five years ago, none of you would ever used a smart phone. practically, all of us do that. we carry in our pockets more computing power than existed the day we were born. it's it's in our pockets waiting for us to check e-mails. the same thing is happening in manufacturing. look at the advances in the robotics, artificial intelligence. china's manufacturing industry will be toast. it will start coming back to america like we never imagined before. we have the debate about health care. health care is advancing like you cannot imagine. between digital medicine, major advances are happening. i am a heart patient. my iphone case is an ekg machine. i can mail that to my cardiologists. the way technology is going, i will not need a ca
support technology that ensures that people who are here are here legally. whether it is that or something like that, there are more people more qualified to speak on that. i would say including an ability for employers to verify the legal status that is better and more comprehensive. >> we tried to do that and failed, but you will still have the underground employers if you have people who are overstating their student visas. my concern -- you have answered this in different variations time and time again. this is a very generous pathway to citizenship. maybe may be we tight unit and find a compromise, and how to avoid creating an incentive for people to keep coming here? that is what my constituents -- and that a big stumbling point. >> you solve the issue that you have in front of you that you improve the ability to see the folks who should not be here and ensure that people do not overstay their visas. >> i say i'm out of time, but i do not see how you do it. how do you track them? >> throwing our hands up is not an option. >> the chair recognizes the gentleman from florida, mr. garcia
of me today about specific programs, submarine programs, different areas of technology and acquisitions, and our superior technology. i said i do not know enough about it. i do not. there are many things i do not know about. if confirmed, i intend to know a lot more than i do. i will have to. but at the same time, i would never think that, as i said earlier, this is about me or that i will be running anything. i will be the leader. i will be responsible. i will be accountable, but i've got to rely on the right teams, right people to bring those to get there. it is accountability and responsibility. i would stop there, if they give you some sense of how i would intend to do this business. >> my theory of leadership is to hire good people and take credit for what they do. >> [laughter] >> you are a guy from nebraska and in the army, so i imagine you do not get up in the morning and think about the navy. i hope to correct that in the next few years, particularly in maine and other parts of the country. there's a multi-year procurement program that is in jeopardy because of the budget situa
be as a force agile, flexible, quickly deployable and at the cutting edge of technology. that can be an effective force for the future. yet, we can be smaller, but agility, flexibility, the ability to move fast when crisis happens, that's what can distinguish the united states' defense policy. secondly, it was important for us to project power into the pacific and into the middle east. those are the key areas where we've got some serious problems -- north korea, iran. we need to have a power presence in those areas. theuse that's where greatest potential for conflict lies. third, we need to maintain a presence elsewhere in the world, and so what was developed was the idea, an innovative idea of rotational deployments where we could send our forces into countries, latin america, africa, europe, other places to train, to exercise, to work with that country to develop their capabilities, to develop new partnerships, new alliances so that they could become part of this security force for the future. fourthly, we had to maintain the capability to defeat more than one enemy at a time. i
to this position. first, chuck is acutely aware that even in an age of rapid technological advances, our military capability and effectiveness depend on the quality and the morale of the people who serve our nation in uniform, as well as the families who support them. chuck received two purple hearts in vietnam, and he continued to fight for veterans and active duty military personnel. he knows that our people are the strongest assets. second, chuck's experience in vietnam shape his life in perspective. war for chuck hagel is not an abstraction. i am confident that if confirmed, he will ask the hard and smart questions before sending troops into battle. chuck hagel knows that the united states has vital interests that are worth fighting for and dying for. he also knows that war should be a last resort, and that our nation must effectively use all of our tools, not limited only to our military, to protect our important and to protect our vital interests. certainly, mr. chairman, there is a tension in these values, but it is a tension we should welcome in the thought process and in the advice that
technology gets down alongside the product technology. and does not mean you cannot do it in a certain way. i'll never give up on trying to win globally but most products today have this incredible linkage between the design and how it is manufactured. we will purchase $13 billion from small, medium-sized companies. >> when the day setting stories in manufacturing these days is 3d manufacturing. is this over hyped? the founder of one of his thesey's -- one of companies -- >> if you look of a company like ours, we make incredible -- at our core, we are a materials company. we probably, if to the the the common thread between gas turbines, jet engine, locomotive, if the material technologies. that is who we are. and we do unique shapes. in shape of a turbine blade might be the difference in one or two points of fuel burn it and to the way that engine works. that is billions of dollars to our customers. you get a block of something and you weld it and take the scra p, that is how you make those parts. preprinting allows you to make the product right the first time from the car up c do not have a
